There is the seasonal aspect that User pointed out. More generally, the low price of the Aldi and Lidl special offers relies on them selling all of it in a short time. So they offer products fewer times, and they stock less of it than they possibly could sell.bonj said:only twice a year??!
why the bloody hell don't they have 'em more often?
er... now? but i don't want bib longs or any of that poncey shite. just waterproofs if I ever need 'em. But i'm beginning to think even they're going to be pointless as long as I can keep warm, which I will do with any cheap waterproof jacket that's relatively snug-fitting, doesn't have to be cycling specific. Want them cheap rather than branded ones then I can get two sets and keep one set at work and one at home.Because that's how Aldi and Lidl play. And it works for them.
how many times a year do you need to buy winter cycling gear?
Guess I'll be wearing the 3/4 baggies Sunday then?bonj said:but i don't want bib longs or any of that poncey shite.
don't get me wrong, they're ok - i just don't really undersand them? as in, the advantage over normal trousers?gambatte said:Guess I'll be wearing the 3/4 baggies Sunday then?
Wouldn't have anyway, not in daylight.
Might be worthwhile considering them if you're doing a 46mile round trip, in winter?
Have you tried popping into Decathlon? They tend to have 'end of line/clearance areas'
Got fleecy lined biblongs from there £10.45 a pair. Couple of weeks it'll be dark, mornings and nights and I'll be able to wear them!
